Outwork Filly Runs to the Money in Sharp Debut Score at Churchill


Abrogate | Coady

8th-Churchill Downs, $87,037, Msw, 11-12, 2yo, f, 6f, 1:10.53, ft, 6 lengths.
ABROGATE (f, 2, Outwork–Hot Coffee, by Burning Roma) took all the money for her debut Thursday at Churchill, broke on top and never looked back in a sharp victory, becoming the 13th winner for her streaking freshman sire (by Uncle Mo). Showing an upbeat worktab highlighted by a local five-furlong gate breeze in 1:00 2/5 (6/46) Nov. 1, the $270,000 Keeneland September grad was bet hard throughout and kicked smoothly from the stalls as a 3-2 chalk. Quickly taking command, the dark bay clicked off a :22.23 quarter before being set upon by Zoom Up (Upstart) nearing the straightaway. Cutting the corner into the lane, Abrogate quickly scooted clear again past the three-sixteenths pole and slammed the door in the final furlong, cruising past the wire in hand six lengths to the good of Zoom Up. The winner's second dam is a half to 2010's champion sprinter Big Drama (Montbrook) and MGISW Sheer Drama (Burning Roma). Her dam, a $30,000 Keeneland November purchase in 2015, has a yearling Daredevil filly who sold to Mike Rutherford for $130,000 at Fasig-Tipton October and is now named Thedevilyousay. She produced a colt by Good Samaritan this season before visiting Hard Spun. Sales History: $75,000 Wlg '18 KEENOV; $270,000 Ylg '19 KEESEP. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $49,092.
